What is Warp & Weft? Warp and weft refer to the horizontal and vertical lines in the weaving process. The threads on a loom that is parallel to the selvage are called warping. The perpendicular threads are called the weft.
Another great tool for sewing is the Crafter’s Edge Crossover II and cutting dies. “Sweet Dreams Baby” hearts were cut using this awesome machine and heart and circle die! (The pattern includes the heart and circle if you don’t have a cutting device.)
Iron Heat n Bond Lite Iron-on Adhesive to the wrong side of fabrics; let cool. Following Crafter’s Edge instructions, place the paper side of the adhesive facing up on the platform*. Cover as directed before running through the machine. Run die and fabric through the machine. Peel off paper liner from the backs of applique pieces.
Place applique, adhesive side down, on the right side of the fabric. Press according to package directions until the entire piece is bonded. Let cool. Sew around the edges of the applique using a straight, zig-zag, or blanket stitch.
My name is Carol Swift and I live in Las Vegas. I love, love, love to sew and blog about my quilting adventures at Just Let Me Quilt. My husband supports me by travelling to different places for photos, often hanging over very high places to help me get the perfect photo view of my quilts. Thank goodness he's so brave! Over and above my sewing/quilting, I have four children and six grandsons (The Monkey Boys) and one granddaughter (The Monkey Girl) who totally rock my world!
